I asked this question on meta, and they told me to ask it here and have a moderator raise it to S.E.
If anyone has noticed, the community promotion ads post has been sitting in meta for a while. There are 3 ad suggestions, all 3 with 2 votes. It's been that way for at least two months, and it's most likely going to stay that way. We need the required vote minimum lowered on our site. Since this site has a low number of users, and a very small percentage of those users are MA meta users, it would be very hard for a given ad proposal to get the required 6 votes. It's not that the community isn't interested, it's just that there isn't enough community! S.E. isn't going to make this change to our site (or any other small sites) unless the issue is raised to them by the community. And that's us! Community promotion ads shouldn't only show up on larger sites, they should show up on ours too! They can be helpful because they can help users find a product or service that could be beneficial to them. And there's no reason for us to NOT have that. Nothing bad will come from raising this concern higher up.
Here is the question I asked on Meta.
